The interior has an exquisite styling design with an assortment of luxurious amenities within your reach. It has a comfortable ride quality and impressive handling. Equipping the thunderbird with the appropriate set of tires will enhance its performance and ride quality. CARiD has lined up a team of experts to advice on the best selection for your car. They stock summer tires and winter tires. However, you may opt to acquire the all season tires to eliminate the need for continuous changeover with every subsequent season. Nevertheless, it should be understood that all season tires are not as effective in extreme weather conditions as the specialized tires. CARiD also stock all terrain tires for those who love to the great outdoors. These tires are designed to withstand the rough treatment associated with the deep woods. A run-flat tire is also advantageous on such occasions because it facilitates safe driving even when the tire is damaged.

Ford Thunderbird tires are made from top grade materials such as natural and synthetic rubbers, steel and compound chemicals. They manufacturing process involves innovative techniques geared to ensure the final product meets the strident standards set by the market. Installation of the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) is important to maintain air pressure and appropriate temperatures. These devices are installed on the tires to monitor air pressure and temperature. They transmit data to the vehicle’s computer regularly and warn the driver when a particular tire is under inflated. All tires are designed to serve for a specific period before being retired. The threads are affected by rough weather and terrain. Reduced threads diminish performance and safety. They hamper the free flow of air through the grooves thereby increasing heat buildup and perpetuating tire failure.

    New TPMS Sensors | The Best Choice With Your New Wheels & Tires
    Tire Pressure Monitoring System sensors (TPMS sensors) are fitted in place on the inner surface of your wheel, inside your tire. Attached to that sensor is a valve stem that protrudes outside the tire for the purposes of adding air. A built-in pressure detector monitors tire inflation at all times when the vehicle's ignition is on. That pressure detector has its own battery and transmitter which relays information to the car's main computer. Vehicle control systems read input from all four tires, and will alert the driver via a warning light if the pressure in any one of them drops 25% or more below a pre-determined level. The idea is to give a driver an "early warning" if any tires are low, so that the tire pressures can be corrected.
